To potential friends and employers, I'm Anna Davies from day one, but potential boyfriends only know me as Annabelle Kathryn until at least date three.

I began using the name in my early twenties, when I realized just how many first dates were Googling me before we met and unearthing essays on topics ranging from why I love hooking up with guests at weddings to that time I told a guy I was moving to California just to get him to stop texting me.

At worst, he'd be so afraid I'd write about him that he wouldn't give me a chance.

So I started just not sharing my name, especially with guys I met online. I could often go through an entire date without even mentioning my first name.

I'm on a first date at a crowded bar, waiting for my date to come back with our drinks. A girl is standing by his side."It's so weird, my cousin is here! Because, strictly speaking, my name is not Annabelle.

Annabelle, Claire.""Nice to meet you." I cringe as I offer my hand.

And just in case he asked for my e-mail address, I created an Annabelle Kathryn handle. Kelly*, 32, also finds it easier not to share her full name.

A writer as well, her work has touched on mental health issues within her family that she would much rather explain in real life rather than have him read.

Francie acts as an occasional sounding board and confidante for some of Sydney's personal issues, and eventually decides to open a restaurant.

Francie and her friend Will Tippin realize their attraction to each other, and decide to start a relationship.

She hides Will's body in the bathtub shortly before Sydney arrives home.
